A 45-year-old Kimberly Smedley is accused of injecting women’s buttocks illegally with non-approved FDA commercial grade silicone. Smedley of Atlanta pleaded guilty in U.S District Court in Baltimore to charges that could send her to jail for 5 years.
Smedley has been administering the illegal injections in different cities like New York, Washington D.C and Baltimore. Her clients paid her an amount ranging from $500 and $1,600 cash for unsafe butt boosters. The report said that the liquid used by Smedley was made of silicone, which commonly found in paint or furnish polish.
Officials found that Smedley is not a licensed practitioner neither a doctor and the materials she used for the injections do not meet safety and approval of FDA.

Based on the documents reported to the court, one of Smedley’s clients, an exotic dancer in Baltimore, had experienced shortness of breathing right when she received the injections from Smedley. The dancer was found with fluids in her lungs, diagnosed andtreated with pneumonia.
In a hotel in Washington D.C. police arrested Smedley and caught her with the possession of three 18 gauge medical needles.
By injecting customers with commercial silicone, Smedley causes danger to the lives of her customers.
